I love summer for its abundance of colorful fruits and vegetables. Going to the market is just an excuse to admire the most beautiful produce of the year. There's rambutans, romanesco, dragon fruit, figs, all ripe and ready to eat. This time of year the pineapples are delicious and the mangoes are juicy.

Shopping at the market is the best way to say goodbye to summer, bringing home with me the most colorful fruit, and saying hello to fall, admiring the ripening squash. Every time we go, we buy the most gorgeous multi-colored carrots with their greens longer than the carrots themselves. We roast them in balsamic vinegar and a friend paired them with sweet potato greens. The flavors are reminiscent of this time last year and I am so excited to get back in the kitchen.

Summer is all about the salads and seafood, light dishes that don't make us hot and don't weigh us down. Fall, on the other hand, is all about blending flavors, letting them marinate all night and simmer all day in a warm pot. By dinner time, the house smells like a feast and red wine tastes better with the flavors of fall.

Lastly, I just wanted to wish a very happy wedding day to one of my favorite bloggers, Erin at Like/Want/Need. Her wedding begins the first of my wedding season (I'm attending five weddings this fall and four are in a row!) and I'm happy to celebrate hers today, even if from afar. When I got married in May 2013, Erin wrote a guest post for me telling us about her love story. Here she is, a year and four months later getting married as well! She has the most beautiful engagement photos of her and her beau, "JAMAL" in the Philly Museum of Art, and their engagement story in France is the sweetest. Congratulations to E + J. xo, Yelle
